Lo Celso Eager to Get Started at Real Betis

SEVILLE, Spain – Giovani Lo Celso, an Argentine midfielder who has come to Real Betis on loan from Paris Saint-Germain, said on Thursday that he was anxious to take the field for the Spanish-league club.

Lo Celso, who was officially introduced at Benito Villamarin Stadium in Seville, having arrived there after playing two friendlies in recent days for the Argentine national team in the United States, said he was highly motivated for his debut in an away match on Saturday against Valencia.

The 22-year-old midfielder said he had set foot in that southern Spanish city in time for its Andalusian derby on Sept. 2 against Sevilla (which Betis won 1-0) but that because of his international duty in the US his first day of training with his new teammates will be on Friday.

Real Betis’ loan deal with PSG includes an option to buy, according to the Spanish team’s chairman, Angel Haro, who said Betis must purchase the player if the team qualifies once again for a European competition.

“We’re all eager to see how this team plays, and it’s very motivating for a player like me so I never hesitated,” Lo Celso said at the press conference, adding that his move to Betis would be an excellent growth opportunity.

The Argentine said he had lined up in different positions thus far in his career, including both as a defensive and attacking midfielder, but that “wherever the coach decides will be good.”

Lo Celso began playing professionally in 2015 with Argentine club Rosario Central before moving to PSG.

He has appeared in 54 official matches with the Parisian giants dating back to April 2017, scoring six goals and tallying nine assists.
